Swindon Town 3-2 Stevenage

A brace from Luke Norris inspired Swindon Town to victory over Stevenage at the County Ground.

The 24-year-old scored either side of Keshi Anderson's strike to give David Flitcroft's side their first league win at home this season.

Swindon went ahead when Norris poked home Chris Hussey's corner at the far post.

The striker then turned provider when he squared the ball to Anderson, who tucked home his first goal since joining on loan from Crystal Palace.

The 22-year old nearly made it 3-0 early in the second half, but his curling effort smacked against the woodwork.

Stevenage's top scorer Danny Newton got the visitors back into the game with a shot from close range.

The hosts were awarded a penalty when Kellan Gordon's cross was handled in the box and Norris fired the spot kick into the bottom-right corner for his sixth goal of the season.

Joe Martin curled a free-kick into the top-right corner for Stevenage late on, but Swindon held on for all three points.
